. it was the crown jewel of the clinton administration they could work with a republican house to finally come to a balanced put it an budget. he reiterated he doesn't feel like a balanced budget is a goal and i can't imagine simply saying as a nation we will spend what we have and not try to overspend. >> mike: listen to a clip from the president during 2008 back in the campaign when seemed to have a different attitude about balancing the budget. >> it number 43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back. $30,000 for every man, woman and child. that is irresponsible. it is unpatriotic. >> mike: i get the impression that he thought it was unpatriotic if you had a $9 trillion debt. but a $17 trillion debt suddenly moves us back to patriotism. maybe i'm confused at what point between 9 and $17 trillion of money that we owe did we get to be patriotic again? how do you deal with a mindset that completely changes the rules of the game? >> i don't know. and that is our challenge as republicans is to be able to say we do have a
. >> that flies in the face of what bedid in the 1990s. bill clinton the president and john kasich and newt beginning we created the balanced budget act of 1997 and it was during the bush years of spending multiplied now by the obama years that we have the mess. my difficulty with the tea party freshmen isn't the true passion. they are an important part of the republican party. at the end of the day you have to govern. just saying no doesn't get you anything and create these falls crises. you can get past the false crises if you work something out. it doesn't mean sur renning principle. working together in a way that you get 60% of what you want. >> you have to go back. i don't think the tea party has created the budget crisis. we came in with members and tried to do something about it. i remember a day when april 15 is when the house and senate had to pass a budget resolution. i remember when they had to reconcile the 13 appropriations bills and a day when the president actually had to introduce his budget and today we don't do any of that stuff and that is how we got to the $16 trillion a
with a youth group from mexico and seeing what a beloved figure he was, there with president clinton, of course, and even more beloved that his successor, pope benedict. what in your judgment, can this pope, could he, should he do to cullivate that relationship with this country? >> well, i was a very young bishop at the time in washington state, and that was the first time i went
clinton did with aid to families with dependent children. so you have this reform of entitlements, reform of the various welfare programs and tax reform taking the top rate on individuals to 25%, the bottom rate to 10%. so you have two rates, 10 and 25. now we go from 10 up to 44 these days. and the corporate rate, which is 35% right now, the average in europe is 25. so when we compete internationally, we've hobbled ourselves because we tax our companies, our manufacturing companies more harshly than they do theirs. he wants to take that rate to 25 so it's close, so it's at the european average. now, i'd rather be better than europe. the canadians are about 17%. i prefer the canadian rate than the european average. so the republicans and democrats in their two budgets really show who they are. now, there's also a third budget which is the progressive budget which is the more liberal democrats, and they do massive new taxes on top of the ones i discussed plus massive new spending. so you have a sense of there's some democrats who want to go even further into big government than patty murra
or three years. they come back in 1994, win big time. same thing in 2010. unshaky. clinton wins again in '96. come back and the republicans have the white house for eight years. there is something in this report that is interesting and bears a discussion on both sides, repeal of the mccain-feinstei-feingold law. it's intention of good but it hurts both to not spend money in the state. >> eric: bob, you must love that. the far right shooting to the center right and center right at the far right all weekend long. >> bob: i don't think priebus came up with off the top of his head. this is based on polling data. there is some truth to what some of the criticisms are. all you have to do is thereon cpac and you could not miss tuitions taking place in the conservative party. not the least of which is for years, national security has been the underpipping of the conservative republican -- underpinning of the con seventive republican movement. now you have ron paul and others like him and others who feel that way that it's not necessarily isolationism, but pulling back from around the world. v
to control bill clinton and his spending, and he is giving up his card. when boehner says we don't have an immediate dead crisis he is giving up his cards. he doesn't want to actually do something about this but likes being speaker. >> neil: they're looking at the next -- the end of this month we're facing yet another potential crisis. they're going to argue that the government could shut down. and this is their attempt to say, we won't brick -- bring it to that pranksmanship because we don't want it on our door step we caused it. but it's going to boomerang on them. they retook the upper hand and now they're giving it away. >> exactly right. sequestration was passed a year and a half ago, part of the plan a year and a half ago. all the republicans had to do is keep their mouth shut and stay out of the way. thank god they did that. here we go again. if they're not going to stand up now, to obama, and this absolute mindless spending, and borrowing and printing, then i have to say, neil, what the hell good are they? i'm going to tell you i'm not alone in this. the republicans putting out
. nobody thought barack obama could beat hillary clinton and he did. we had a lot of debates about this one. it wasn't romney. he outlasted everybody. i think that process issue is important. last question. what about old fashioned free enterprise? free markets? lower tax rates? limited government. does that not play any more? >> it does, but the sides chose on that. it's the 10 million undecided. they vote for the brand they think is better looking or speaks better. he's a terrible president but amazing brand. >> he's a great speaker. you get him from the teleprompter, it changes. he isn't a great president, but very effective communicator. >> i've got to get out of here. >>> what could be the most intriguing part of this cyprus bailout story? russia's huge money-laundering in the cyprus banks. vladimir putin is angry. we are about to talk to an expert next. putin may be the key to cyprus.

a president named president obama who was not part of that mess and not hillary clinton who frankly was part of that mess. they have had to apologize and explain why they were wrong. that vote for the iraq war has held against them. on the republican side, nixon still does have a secret plan to end the war. on the republican side, iraq was a war of liberation if you ask them in 2013. on the republican side the iraq war is what kept us safe so we wouldn't get attacked again the way we did on 9/11 if you ask them in 2011. that smoking gun could have been a mushroom cloud. thank god we went in. we have been through two presidential election cycles since then, and this is still the top line at the republican party, trying to sell us the same lie. and until the republican party gets right on this, the history will never be told honestly because it will always be told as a contested and partisan thing. how does this get right? >>> the problem here is that there will always be some uncertainty about how quickly he can acquire nuclear weapon. but we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud.
is expected of me? i will never forget a trip i took to -- right after clinton had seen president assad in geneva. prior to the trip, the prime minister conveyed to us what it was he wanted out of it. he produced what he wanted to see come out of it. i walked into the meeting feeling highly confident. we did what you asked. the first thing he did was immediately devalue what i came with. why did he do it? because he knew i was coming to ask something of him. if you go into these meetings in the expectations are very high, each reader is suddenly worried about what you are going to ask of them. when are low, you are in a better position to have a serious conversation and can explore the possibilities. maybe the way you frame that conversation is by talking about, what are the consequences of not getting anything done? with each side. if they are severe enough, how can we think together about what it is that could be possible? where could there be some points of commonality we could build on? i expect you will have, there will end up being serious conversations in private that are much mo
bill clinton until 2004, they would have colt it in the underlying legislation and forced a vote on that. instead, they stripped it out so there's going to be essentially a a ceremony yell vote on the assault weapons ban if any at all, but they're not using the power that they have in the senate to actually get this done. you were right to note that's not by accident, not because they're bad politicians it's because they want the outcome that they're guaranteeing. cenk: if the departments can't win on this, is there anything they can win on? if they can't win on anything, why would anybody vote for them? >> the democrats only have so much political capital. when the gun proposals came out a lot of us said it would be a really tough climb to get these out of the democratically controlled senate and it's going to take capital political capital, president obama pushing hard to negotiate on this bill. when they didn't use that political capital it's not going to get done. you already said it's going to be a ceremony yell vote most likely on the assault weapons ban. forty isn't enough
clinton, good to see you. >> nice to be back. lou: welcome. let's start with tom press. this is an evil merchant operating in the justice department, said the republicans >> i have not and for a long time. he worked -- he worked for senator kennedy. so i would say that he is in the mainstream of democratic. lou: how would you know? >> the mainstream of democratic party on civil-rights issues. i worked at the labor department. >> he does not believe the voting rights act should apply in all. in other words it should not be colorblind. he was president of the organization of maryland that abdicated and supported zero enforcement of any of our emigration laws. >> it's a very selective -- >> you want to give me more? >> i would say that his views are wholly consistent with the obama administration. rest that i will agree with. >> that i will agree with. >> why are people surprised that barack obama was nominated. this is what happened when a president's get elected? to have a choice as to who is going to obtain positions. this is similar to what barack obama stands for. i'm not surprised. >
intelligence. i think, i would add everyone from nancy pelosi to john kerry to bill clinton and denny blair -- tony blair thought saddam hussein was reconstituting the wmd program and used chemical weapons before. there are things we could do better going forward. >> bret: i said operation enduring freedom. that was afghanistan. iraqi freedom, the iraq operation. a.b., you look at how it came to an end. and the violence on the ground now. and what do you think? >> well, that is what is so hard. you look a year-and-a-half, year-and-a-half after the official end of the war and hard to say we protected the gains we made there. not everything we did was wrong. there was a lot of good accomplished. the problem is iranian influence on the rise, al-qaeda getting strong there. a lot of violence that you mentioned. that leaves at it scary play. and, you know, it really to me is a turning point in history in way that the world perceives american strength. our own people marx yourty of americans think they think it was a mistake. the premise of the war will a be questioned, so will the results. >> bre

's more people willing to buy them. some think we're back to where bill clinton was with his homes and then the subsequent bust. the chancellor has acknowledged we need private sector generated growth if we're going to get anything going and that's the way to deal with the deficits, of course. and there were some measures there. no national insurance payments for employees for the first few thousand pounds reducing corporation tax earlier to 20%. infrastructure spending, could it be more? businesses would always want more. but there was acknowledgement he tried while keeping the next fiscally neutral. on the whole, businesses say, not bad, could have done more. i think that will be the summation for them. the key factor, of course, is if you're not going to do more to stimulate your own growth, what happens to the eurozone becomes even more important. and i did speak to the chancellor, george osborne, just a short while ago and i asked him how worried is he about what's going on in cypress? this is what he had to say. >> it is a worrying situation in cypress and i think there's bee
clinton and the democrats with some help from some republicans had put in place, they shredded it under george bush by giving tax breaks to the wealthiest, putting two wars on the credit card, a prescription drug plan that didn't allow medicare to negotiate for lower prices, and the deficit went wild. and it didn't even make sense from an -- i am an old -- i am old. i'm an old economics major, and i remember the basics. you know, you don't go into such deep, deep debt because if there is a recession, you can't really help spend your way out of it, and what happened is when president obama got elected, he faced the worst deficit crisis. that deficit went up to well over a trillion. he's gotten it back to $850 billion. it's still too high, but the fact is i never heard a word from my really good friends on the other side of the aisle. when they were racking up those deficits. oh, this supply-side stuff is going to be great. well, it wasn't great, it wasn't good, and i'm glad that this budget takes us back to the notion in the clinton years which is you have a balanced approach between rev

, president george h.w. bush. then president bill clinton made up for that 12 years of neglect by visiting israel three times. and president george w. bush visited israel once in the last year of his presidency. so not every president visits israel, especially republican presidents, but modern presidential candidates do visit israel. barack obama actually first went to israel in 2006 when he was still an illinois senator. he went again in 2008 when he was running for president. you'll know chris christie is serious about running for president when he schedules a trip to israel. mitt romney went to israel last year in a desperate attempt to exploit a republican lie, that there was some kind of difference between president obama and it's really prime minister benjamin netanyahu about what the borders of israel should be. romney was aided and abetted in that lie by netanyahu, who is an old friend of romney's. they worked together 30 years ago at a boston consulting firm. as we reviewed last night, netanyahu left no room for doubt, he wanted mitt romney to be the next president of the united s

at some point, and most of them end up very disappointed. bill clinton spent a lot of time on it. george w. bush in the end of his administration tried. president obama didn't touch it much in the first term. now he says he's going to try but the big difference is the things that keep the israelis and palestinians from the bargaining table are still there. they feel good about the conversation a month or two or three, are they back at the table. >> the president's in jordan today. what's the focus there? >> reporter: syria. syria. syria. jordan normally a key u.s. ally in trying to nudge the palestinians on some issues. one of the few arab nations that has relationships with israel. but the refugee crisis coming into this country from syria dominated the discussions. king abdullah has a country with a tough economy to begin with. they've spent nearly $1 billion. they say they are approaching half a million syrian refugees and they think it will keep getting worse. the president promised about $200 million more. the united states is already giving quite a bit of money to the syrian refugee

people. when hillary clinton comes out and say she's in favor of gay marm, she got a lot of favorable press. senator rob portman said he was in favor of gay marriage because he has a son that came out as gay a lot whether this was a convenient statement or one motivated by the fact that he had somebody in his family. did you see a double standard? >> yes. one of those places if you're a republican and if you think i act more like a democrat, i'll get more positive coverage, it doesn't work that way. you'll get called out as cynical. you're darned if you do and darned if you don't. >> this particular reporter praised both of them for their hand, but, i want to identify it with a report. the report says young people more and more quote/unquote rolling their eyes more and more at what the republican starty stands for. 81% of young people support marriage equality. the day after this report came out, we at the republican party oppose marriage equality. do they follow the report or not? >> finally, i want to turn to the subject of gun control. back in the news, senate democrats decided not

for president clinton for the air force. there are many things you can say about jeh johnson, but from what i have seen and read and heard, hear other things i think are important to say. this is a man who understands and accepts the challenge and the responsibility of the fact that one man, one individual, one woman can make a difference. this is a person who believes that politicians and policy- makers can leave a mark, whether it is a mark for good or for ill. this is why we invited him here today. he reminds me of something that then attorney general robert kennedy said here at forum when he dedicated this building to the law school at lincoln center. he said, quoting justice jackson, the best attributes of a lawyer is courage. jeh johnson's thought on warfare are of particular interest today. we know something about what he thinks, but not a lot. here is what we do know. and i am quoting from the speech he gave at the oxford union several months ago. he told a group assembled there, war must be recorded as a finite, extraordinary and i natural state of affairs. war violates the natural o
